I recently visited this meditation retreat and shared a room with one lovely young lady. We were chatting a lot about life and our experiences, and she told me this little story about stars:
When two stars meet and come together there are two possibilities: Depending on how fast the stars are moving, through the force of gravity they merge into one lager unit, or each one continues on its own path but carrying inside some part of the other star... After the crash none of them is the same anymore.
And the same actually applies to us humans, too. When our paths cross the effect is the same. We can’t merge with every person, but looking at the big picture, every and each of them have some kind of impact in our lives. That’s why we should treat each person in our life as an opportunity to learn and grow.
With these thoughts we wish you happy weekend!
